The organization announced this in a statement on Wednesday on its website.

"A crew from TV Most, including journalist Jasmina Stojkovic, cameraman Boban Sekulic, and driver Aleksandar Sotlic, were verbally and then physically assaulted by an unknown assailant. According to reports, the cameraman was attacked with a shovel while the crew was filming a news report on humanitarian aid allocation to the Branko Radicevic school in Obilic, on 10 May," the statement said, and quoted Mijatovic:

“Violence against journalists is an attack against free expression and the society as a whole. It is vitally important to quickly investigate this crime and punish the assailants.”
